Friday, October 6, 2017

RESEDA, CA – Over 300 constituents of Assemblymember Matt Dababneh (D – Woodland Hills) attended his Senior Town Hall yesterday to discuss local matters and policy issues affecting seniors in the Valley.

Attendees of the town hall got the opportunity to ask Assemblymember Dababneh questions on issues of interest and concern regarding California state government, including Assembly Bill 611, a bill he authored to protect seniors from financial abuse and fraud that was recently signed into the law by the Governor, along with other bills approved by the Legislature which just adjourned session last month.

“One of the most important parts of my job is to be accountable and accessible to constituents – the best way to do this is by hosting Town Halls,” stated Assemblymember Dababneh. “This was a great opportunity to tell Valley residents about my work to strengthen consumer protections for seniors, enhance the public’s health and safety, and hold our government accountable by increasing transparency.”

Assembler Dababneh took questions from constituents on protection against fraud, affordable housing for seniors, healthcare. Discussion also centered on senior income and cost of living, as well as homelessness and public safety.

Assemblymember Dababneh’s town hall was held at the ONEgeneration Senior Enrichment Center in Reseda. Representatives from the California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles Fire Department, and City and County Departments of Aging also presented information on services and resources available for seniors.  And, staff from Congressman Brad Sherman’s and Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s offices along with staff from Assemblymember Dababneh’s office were available to assist constituents with federal, state, and local issues.  Also, medical staff from Providence Tarzana Medical Center offered free blood pressure screenings to attendees.

Assemblymember Dababneh will be hosting his next town hall on Wednesday, November 8, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Reseda High School with Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
